Hyundai Alcazar Design Sketches Unveiled- Debut On April 7th
Hyundai India has published its new three-row Alcazar SUV with its first series of external and interior sketches. The global launch of the Crete-based Alcazar is scheduled for April end of 2021.
The only outside sketch revealed by Hyundai reveals the next three-quarter Alcazar SUV, where big changes appear to take the third seat row into account. The Alcazar is extended with a much thicker C-pillar and rear overhang. It also has a prominent waistline, with notable pitches over the arches of the wheel. In addition, the Alcazar would have a special back door feature, a marginally taller buffer with a protruding false skid plate. The model has a special alloy wheel, a subtly changed front grill,e and other minor tweaks to distinguish it from the Crete.
Hyundai’s first interior design reveals that the Alcazar is coming with the chairs of the captain for the second row.
A very unusual central base with cup holders and perhaps a storage console below would be installed on the floor. Second-row passers would also get a wireless recharge pad, and access to the third-row is only feasible with this center-console configuration after folding the second-row seats with the tumble-down function. Apart from these updates, a dashboard, a steering wheel, and the center console like the Crete are still used in the Alcazar.
Although the company has not yet confirmed this, the Hyundai Alcazar is offering the same options as the Creta petrol and diesel engine. This enables the Korean brand to offer consumers more competition than the direct competitors–the MG Hector Plus and Tata Safari–than a selection of engine and gearbox solutions. ADAS technology on the Alcazar – known as Hyundai SmartSense in Overseas–will also be shown.
Services such as front crash assistance, including automated emergency breakage technology, blind spot collision prevention assistance, driver attention warning, reverse automatic emergency brake and a reversed cross-traffic alarm may also be used. In addition, the three-row Hyundai Alcazar SUV can be expected to provide features such as intelligent cruises control, road driving assistance, and lane departure alert.
On April 7th, the Hyundai Alcazar will have a world premiere. In June, Hyundai is expected to release Alcazar prices. The upcoming MG Hector Plus and the newly-launched Tata Safari are key competitors for Alcazar. Furthermore, the exiting Mahindra XUV500 is also going to compete and will enter showrooms later this year, with the next-generation iteration.
